This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits research grant applications to examine the mechanisms of interaction between licit or illicit substance abuse, or medications to treat substance abuse, and events related to the etiology and pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated neurologic complications.

This FOA will use the R01 grant mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, RFA-DA-07-003, which solicits applications under the R21 mechanism.

Requests for supplements may not exceed $150,000 direct costs per year, and the duration cannot exceed the remaining duration of the parent grant. At this time, it is not known if, subsequent to this RFA, competing renewal (formerly “competing continuation”) applications will be accepted and/or if this FOA will be reissued. Eligible institutions/organizations include public/state-controlled institutions of higher education; private institutions of higher education; nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) IRS status (other than institutions of higher education); nonprofit organizations without 501(c)(3) IRS status (other than institutions of higher education); small businesses; for-profit organizations (other than small businesses); state governments; US territories or possessions; Indian/Native American tribal governments (federally recognized); Indian/Native American tribal governments (other than federally recognized); Indian/Native American tribally designated …
